Re: Freeza Saga Son Gohan humming Makafushigi Adventure in French dub

Kid Goku does it too, on occasion. Definitely in GT, can't recall for OG Dragon Ball. It's a weird quirk Brigitte Lecordier brings to the two. A lot of ad-libbing going on in the original French dub so I imagine that has something to do with it.

Re: Best/Your Preferred Dragon Ball Releases (DVD, Blu-Ray.etc)

Favorite isn't really saying much, since we end up with one shortcoming or another each release. DB: The Saga Sets. I prefer these over the Bricks because the there's a little less of the image cut out and we get Japanese Titles Cards. Z: Dragon Boxes. It's not nearly as impressive as the stunning L...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I mean... There's a lot they probably could do, but playing it safe seems to already yield plenty of merchandise sales so I doubt they'll do things differently any time soon. Back in 2013, a great beginning for this "2nd Renaissance", when Beerus teased the other Universes, the Dragon World suddenly...

Re: Which dub is more faithful to the original audio?

Sorry for the double-post but I can't edit my original post anymore. I just remembered Z Movies 10 and 11 have a recently-resurfaced Philippines-based english dub by Solar Entertainment. If accuracy's what you care about most, from what I've seen, they're translated more literally than FUNimation's ...

Re: Which dub is more faithful to the original audio?

Dragon Ball: FUNimation Uncut or Blue Water (they're both half-faithful and half-inaccurate in different ways) Movie 1: 2010 Funimation Re-Dub Movie 2: FUNimation (Remaster with JP Audio) or AB Groupe. Your choice. FUNi almost completely changed the script, but AB Groupe has terrible direction, and ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

...How did Kakarot get the dragonball from Master Roshi? They first met after one of his Full Moon rampages, and he wasn't carrying the ball. Either Bulma got it from him during her first search, or someone got it from Kame House after he died. As for Mt. Frypan, very good question. Maybe it rained.

Re: Could a "Dragon Ball: Next Generation" show work?

Please no... I'm not saying it can't be good, but it probably wouldn't be. They're generally meant to ride on the success of their predecessors. Naruto did with Boruto and while it's financially successful, it's a slog to watch. Hell, even Super just feels like fluff; a fun romp on first viewing, bu...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

Ceyli Delgadillo as Goku (FUNi DB Movie 2). I liked her as Dende, but she wasn't spunky enough to play Goku. But what elsr can you expect from early in-house FUNimation? Also, Tiffany Vollmer as Bulma. Not a bad actress, especially as the series went on, but it was a strange choice to have billionai...

It's a normal upscale of the DBox master, which is the same master as Funi used for their DVD.

It's not outright shit, but it makes no improvement over the DVD footage, so it's worthless.
Well, this is disappointing, considering how bad it looks compared the rest of DBox as it is.

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Speaking as someone who primarily views the series with the Japanese score, I still give some merits to the Faulconer score; music placement is more deliberate, while there are occasionally times on the Japanese side of things where it seems more arbitrary. Makes sense, since Faulconer Prod. specifi...

Mexican Blu-ray for GT Special?

I knew Zima released the movies and Z specials, but I just found out about this. Anyone know how this compares to the Dragon Box or FUNi releases? Is it a just an upscale, or an actual remaster?

Thank you, thank you, thank you TFS for 10 years of free laughs. I've laughed harder at this than almost anything I'd seen on TV for years with every new episode. Better to tie up the series while it is still strong (it took them a year to put the final episode) than to get a disappointing conclusio...

Re: Hyper Dimension Development?

The only thing I can infer is that, as a last-gen title (Ultimate Battle 22 was already out on PS1), they really wanted to push the SNES hardware to its limit and wow players with something beautiful and unique, since UB22 was already kind of a Butoden sequel. Just my wild but speculative guess. Cou...

Welp, Merus being an Angel is anything but confirmed. Enjoyed this last chapter quite a bit.

Bootenks getting under Gohan's skin using Piccolo and Goten's knowledge, instead of the usual Shônen battle taunts. It added a little spice to the fight without going TOO far off-script.

Seems like one of your HD collection is European (hence the multilingual files) and the other is American. B3 is fundamentally identical between regions (save refresh rates), but B1 has quite a few differences between regions, so that's probably why the disparity between files. If that's the case, y...
